Fulham Betting Preview
Fulham comes into this game sitting in 10th place in the standings having picked up 45 points. In the last game against Liverpool Fulham’s defense was decent, but they ended up losing 1-0. Fulham finished with 42 percent of the three shots on target. Andreas Pereira and Tim Ream are both out for the season because of injuries and not having both guys is a big loss for the squad. In this game Fulham is going to need the defense to step up and make this game lower scoring.
Leicester City Betting Preview
On the other side of this matchup is Leicester City who sits in 16th place in the standings having picked up 30 points. Leicester City comes into this game out of the relegation zone, but they could find themselves back in it soon if they don’t start having games where they picked up three points. Last Monday they faced off against Everton and ended up playing to a 2-2 draw. Leicester City could get a few big reinforcements for this game. Jonny Evans and Ricardo Pereira both look to be healthy and both could play a role in this game. Kelechi Iheanacho is dealing with a groin injury and he’s still out for the time being.
Shane’s Free Pick
It looks like Leicester City is getting some big time reinforcements back, and that is going to help them a lot in this game. Leicester City is going to score two or three goals and Fulham doesn’t have the offense to keep up. Look for a 2-1 or 3-1 type of game and Leicester City will get the job done.
